ALCF Deploys Testbed to Advance AI for Science

The Argonne Leadership Computing Facility (ALCF) is building a testbed comprised of advanced artificial intelligence (AI) platforms. Designed to explore the possibilities of high-performance computing (HPC) architectures, the ALCF AI Testbed will enable the facility and its user community to help define the role of AI accelerators in next-generation scientific machine learning. “The testbed combines a […]

Groq AI Chip Benchmarks Leading Performance on ResNet-50 Inference

Today AI chip startup Groq announced that their new Tensor processor has achieved 21,700 inferences per second (IPS) for ResNet-50 v2 inference. Groq’s level of inference performance exceeds that of other commercially available neural network architectures, with throughput that more than doubles the ResNet-50 score of the incumbent GPU-based architecture. ResNet-50 is an inference benchmark for image classification and is often used as a standard for measuring performance of machine learning accelerators.
